So I recently bought a bogner uberschall head that I tried through a few different
cabs and I know I love how it sounds, it's a really great sounding amp, tried it through
engl,rivera and orange cabs in differrent stores in Israel.

The thing is that my band doesnt have a reharsel space of our own and while there are
412 cabs in reharsel rooms in Israel, they always have those crappy marshall 1960 cabs loaded with T75's, this was the only cab I tried with this amp that made it sound terrible,
really undefined and muddy sound, I was trying to tweak it through our two hour reharsel,
nothing made it any better.

I'm using a framus panthera custom 7 string guitar through it by the way,
it's made from mahagony and has ebony board and a flame top, ovangckol neck
and SD Jb and 59 pickups.

I thought about bringing the MXR 10 band EQ I have to our next reharsel but it makes the amp sound completely different even without turnning one frequency, I dont like that, I just want to shape the bogner's sound.

I tried using my maxon od9 infront of the amp but it didnt help alot.

Your suggestions? How can I make the asmp sound tighter and clearer through the T75's?


Thanks,
Daniel.

im surprised youre complaint isnt that "it sounds like goddamned fizzle" :lol:

Honestly, Not a whole lot you can do. Could you pick up a 212 to go with it?

Tweak, bring a tubescreamer, and/or just deal. You can't always be really picky about your tone in a rehearsal or live context, depending on backline.

I've honestly never had a problem with t75s sounding flubby. Try turning your gain down and the bass down on the amp itself. Ubers have a huge amount of low end that can get away from you very quickly. I've owned an uberschall before so i'm not talking out my ass here. tweak with your eyes closed, bass down mids up, trebel and presence to taste. a boost will also tighten that thing up too.

Yeah, if you love how the amp sounds, but just not at your rehearsal space, I'd say just deal with it - your amp is capable of giving you the sound you like, so just make do for rehearsal and get the tone you like live.

It's just frustrating paying that much for an amp and not enjoying it in reharsels.
I'll try taking down the bass, the gain is on 1 o'clock, looks pretty usual to me.

And yeah it also hasd this kind of fizz through these speakers, really annoying, I

We have the same problem here in the US with rehearsal studios...

The solution:

1) Bring your own cab
2) Deal with it

Both options suck. :rofl:

Basically, what everyone else has said: just deal with it. We have to play through the same crappy Marshall cabs with crappy G75T-12 speakers at our rehearsal space, but it is better than having to lug our own cabs twice a week. Just turn up the bass a touch, back of the presence, and do the best you can.

It really makes playing live a treat, though, since cranking through your own cab is sheer bliss. :metal:

Ok, I'll try tweaking with my ears.

The cab I currently have is a 1X12 orange cab, I dont think it would be too wise to bring it, I considered buying a 4X12 orange cab but I think it's just abit overkill to bring this to each reharsel.

Arent there alot of cheap studios you can rent and pay per month in the US?
I always saw that the majority of people in the US own half stacks, I always thought these guys have their own placve with their band to keep it.

if you have a 1x12 and have transportation, you might as well bring it, put in on top of the 4x12 and only hook up the 1x12. that way the cab is higher in the air and you're more likely to hear it and like the tone. when i practice i play through my live rig so i always know what to expect from my tone. i do practice in my basement. I bought a house just for the luxury of doing so though.

Nope. It's hard to find any space at all. For a while we had a dedicated space where we could leave our gear setup, but that got closed down by the cops. After that it was shitty Marshalls at best, or load in and out your own gear every time at worst.

Hell, I've never had the option NOT to haul my entire rig. You should consider yourself luck you can even play without hauling a cab up three flights of stairs, like I was for a while. :lol:

No. If you want big, you'll have to get a big cab. I think you're not in an ideal situation, so something is going to have to give. You either deal with less than perfect sound, or you deal with taking a 4x12 cab to practice every time.

i think you would be fine with the 1x12, and ask your other guitarist if he could turn down at all. Personally, when i jam i dont like the guitars any louder than they need to be. I find alot of bands just crank everything louder than it needs to be.

I have jammed with a bassist, "drummer" and another guitarist with a 112, and we could all hear each other fine.

Your options are listed, you know what to do.

PS: :facepalm: you were tweaking with your eyes and not your ears this whole time? Dag yo..
